Benedict College senior defensive back Traviontae Brown has been named to the 2019 College Football America Yearbook Division II Preseason Starting Lineup, CFAY's version of an All-America team.
Brown earned multiple post-season accolades after the 2018 season, after recording five interceptions and leading the SIAC with 12 passes defended. He finished with 14 total tackles, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery. He was named the 2018 Don Hansen Football Gazette NCAA Division II All-Super Region Two squad, honorable mention All-American by BOXTOROW and second-team All-American by the American Football Coaches Association.
Brown was the only selection from the SIAC. Chowan and Virginia Union from the CIAA each placed one representative on the squad for the other selections representing HBCU schools.
The 2019 College Football America Yearbook features more than 930 college football teams from the United States and Canada in more than 250 striking, full-color pages. That includes every team from the NCAA (FBS, FCS, Division II and Division III), NAIA, NJCAA, CCCAA and U Sports (Canada).
